Almost two months ago I adopted 2 strawberry shortcake dolls for my project “scraps”. The minute I took my new tiny friends out of the box they completely stole my heart with their cute and innocent look. I absolutely thought they were the cutest dolls I’ve ever seen. I was so happy with my new friends that I decided to adopt two more for my sister.
For some weird reason I always want my sister to have identical items like the ones I have. Although I spend days searching for dolls identical to the ones I bought, I had no luck. Yet, I still managed to find a nice pair of dolls. The hardest one to find was the Huckleberry Pie doll.
As I was searching for Huckleberry I came across a nice strawberry fairy doll and this time the seller had a few of these identical dolls. LUCKY DAY!! I just couldn’t ignore such a great opportunity and a week later I bought two dolls. Finally, my sister and I have one identical doll in our rooms.
I thought my search for dolls came to an end. . . but it was far from over.
For some time I had been thinking in buying an 18 inch doll, so, I could practice sewing/dress making but buying an “American girl doll” wasn’t in my budget. While I was searching for the dolls for my sister I found a 15” Playmates Strawberry Doll and I couldn’t resist the temptation to adopt her. She looked cute and the size was perfect [she was not too small and not too big] for my small room [not enough space for new items.]
After my sister saw the doll she joke about the doll saying that she needed a friend to play with. Those words kept ringing inside my head and the impulsive me started the search again to find a friend for my Strawberry doll. Then, I adopted Rainbow Sherbet, so, Strawberry would have someone to play with. A few days later I adopted another Rainbow Sherbet for my sister and just two days ago I adopted another Strawberry doll for my sister.
Yup, I’m so impulsive…my bad! I must confess that it has been a really long time since I bought a doll or toy or a collectible for me. it is not as if I buy stuff too often, so, I think it is not as bad as it sounds.
